Slumdog Millionaire
The first 3/4 is basically Oliver Twist and makes for excellent viewing, but the dramatic climax of the film appropriates the inauthentic, manufactured drama of awful reality television (the film's climax cleaves exactly to the fulsomely protracted climax of any episode of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?), and the ending is happy-happy dreadful.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Australian Hughie, our pretending-to-be-Canadian Wolvie, pivots his motorcycle by slashing asphalt with his claws and then takes out a Humvee with his claws and then flies up in the air and stabs a helicopter and rides on top of the helicopter. And Liev Schreiber is Sabretooth.
